It’s always helpful to see dinosaurs in the flesh, so to speak, instead of just fossilized bones. Today I have the identical dinosaur recreation taken at two focal lengths with two different cameras.
The first is a classic head and shoulder portrait made with the Fujifilm X-T10. At a 38mm equivalent focal length, there is some wide-angle distortion, but not extreme.
Modern renderings of dinosaurs seem to add more color and feathers, making them closer to precursors of modern-day birds. This one appears to be an older interpretation.
I made this second full-body portrait with the Olympus with the wide-angle. At an 18mm equivalent, we get the entire elongated body. The wide-angle no doubt stretched it out further for added drama. That’s what I usually go for with this kind of lens.
